Skill Level:


This is a nice simple leaf identification sheet from the Woodland Trust Nature Detectives. The link also has a 30 second video to inspire your students to go out and get some leaves.

Woodland Trust Nature Detectives is it a great site with a searchable bank of nature based activity sheets. They are clearly marked with the age suitability.
